The Indiana Dental Practice Act granted certification for licensed hygienist to administer local anesthesia. This course will provide the required didactic and laboratory training for certification under the rules established by the Indiana State Board of Dentistry. By taking this intensive and comprehensive program, participants will learn how to safely and properly administer local anesthesia to their patients. Upon completion, participants will be eligible to take the CDCA (formerly the NERB) Local Anesthesia Exam and apply for the required Indiana Local Anesthesia Permit.
You will learn:
• Greater palatine/nasopalatine
• Long buccal
This course includes case-based review of medical emergency management and what to do when you can’t get your patient numb.
This program is designed for licensed dental hygienists who want to receive certification in the administration of block and local infiltration anesthesia. You must be a currently licensed dental hygienist practicing in Indiana to take this course, as well as current in BLS for the Healthcare Provider.
It will be up to each participant to register to take the CDCA (formerly the NERB) Local Anesthesia Examination for Dental Hygienists, and submit required paperwork for licensing. You can find out more about the exam at: https://adextesting.org/exams/
